Vertigo Games, the developers behind Arizona Sunshine (2016), today announced their PC VR strategy game Skyworld (2017) is finally making its way to PlayStation VR this month.
Update (March 13th, 2019): Vertigo Games today announced that Skyworld will launch for PlayStation VR on March 26th, 2019. The PSVR release will add new player-progress features to the game including a persistent leveling system whereby players can earn
XP in single and multiplayer matches and from daily challenges, and unlock avatars. The studio also says a new leaderboard specifically for PSVR users will be available.

Original Article (November 27th, 2018): Skyworld is slated to arrive on PSVR next year, Vertigo Games tells us, although there’s no specific launch date yet. The studio says it’ll launch sometime in early 2019 (see update).
Skyworld reimagines classic strategy gameplay for VR by combining turn-based strategy and real-time battles set in a variety of animated miniature worlds. Featuring both single-player campaign and online multiplayer battles, Skyworld lets you build and command pint-sized armies and build decks spanning land, air, ranged, and spellcasting units.
It’s uncertain at this time whether Skyworld will be available with cross-platform multiplayer, as the game has been available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift since its launch in late 2017.
While we haven’t had the opportunity to review Skyworld, check out our early hands-on from last year to get an idea of what it’s all about.
